"My take is that the Bond novels as well as the works of ERB, and for that matter most per-1980 popular fiction books, are slowly fading into obscurity.
As for Goldfinger - the movie is one of my favorites in the Bond series, I would rank both…"
"Skin of Evil was the first Next Generation episode that had an impact on me. Up to that point it seemed as if the series was simply treading water, relying on us die hard fans to stick with them irregardless.
The writer credit on the episode was to…"
"I rented the audio book of Moonraker to listen to in the car while my wife and I drove to Northern Michigan for vacation this past summer. So much of the beginning involves Bond's card game with Drax at Blades, with the typical Fleming focus…"
"Some believe that Sean Connery was cast as Bond because of his resemblance to McClusky's rendition of 007 in the newspaper strip.

"I've read every Ian Fleming Bond novel at least twice each - the exceptions being Man With The Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me. I didn't enjoy either of those as much as the other books and never went back for a second reading,…"
"George Harrison gave Sour Milk Sea to Jackie Lomax who was one of the original signees to the Apple Records label. The song used to get a bit of airplay on the FM rock stations in the early Seventies. As I recall, it was a pretty good song."
"I returned to the Moody Blues this weekend. I chose To Our Children's Children's Children but In Search Of The Lost Chord will be next in my listening line up.
Also listening to Catch Bull At Four by Cat Stevens. I love the song Angelsea…"
"Hopefully you will post a synopsis and review. I believe the only element retained in the final film from Serling's screenplay was the "omigosh, I've been on Earth the entire time" bit which he had used a time or two already in…"
